proving, guys, you can work together and you can sing together and have a successful relationship. >> it has to work very well. they travel so much. they travel a lot. they're on the bus, on the road together. see all the cities and meet great people. >> the name of their hit song is exactly what you said, "you are going to catch a girl." >> i thought it was "if i didn't have you." either way, you can't survive without me. >> tucker is in for doosy, you're in for gretchen. first thing's first. >> you're the veteran. we're following you today. >> i'm me. sadly. >> we're glad you are. all right. we have serious news to tell you about. a fox news alert. there's a manhunt this morning for two teenagers who are suspected of brutally beating a world war ii veteran to death leaving him there to die. heather nauert joins us. >> we've been following the story all night long. police in washington state now say they are searching for the teenagers that they believe are responsible for killing a
veteran who was described by his family members as full of life. late last night spokane police releasing the surveillance video hoping that someone will recognize them. the suspects are being described as young black males between the ages of 16 and 19 years old. authorities say that they jumped 89-year-old delbert belton on 8:00 at i'm in. he was on his way to play game of pool. these teenagers beat him so badly that he suffered major injuries to his head. police found him later inside his car and they brought him to the hospital and that's where he died yesterday. belton's nephew speaking out about this senseless tragedy. he said his great uncle offered him a new life and took him into his home during hard times. listen to this. >> i was pretty depressed as it was. and delbert really did, it seems trivial. he saved my life.
he made it possible for me to go get a job, find work. he wasn't just my great uncle, he was a great person. he didn't deserve to die like that. >> no. certainly no one does. belton served our country during world war ii. he survived being wounded in action during the battle of okinawa. now police say they don't believe that belton knew these attackers. but if anyone who knows who these two teenagers are, please give police a call. police in spokane, washington, following this very, very closely. we'll bring you the latest as we get it. >> horrible story. thank you. >> like so many times when things like this happen, people want to weigh in. they're not waiting for the cameras to show up at your house with twitter. jam woods who has gone silent for a long time after coming out strongly after 9/11 is weighing in on major issues including this one, asking people to retweet this about delbert. he says don't let him die without anyone caring. he went on to go -- that was
james woods. now here is michelle malkin. she says this. as i exhibit -- as exhibit one for gang control. what's the guns grabbing left's excuse now? >> if you want to rob an elderly man, you don't have to beat him to death. there was hate behind this crime and anger and totally pointless violence. >> i think goes back to where are -- i think all of these crimes we've been talking about this week, where are the men? men need to step up to the plate and be role model to these boys because they're all boys that are committing the crimes. at least this week. we just had a report of horrific news. we were talking earlier in the newsroom, several of us applied for big brothers big sisters. do you know they're telling us that they don't need women
anymore. i applied for this, they said we appreciate it. we don't need you. we need men out there. we need male role models. one of our producers is a big brother to a little boy. and now they're asking him to take on another little boy because they're in desperate need of the guys. so many crimes and all of these little young teenage boys are committing these crimes. >> it's true. it's a definitive fact of poor neighborhoods in this country, the lack of fathers. when is the last time you heard the president of the united states call for men to marry the mothers of their children? let's see, never. he never said that. it's remarkable given the divorce rate of 70% that he wouldn't say that. >> the manhunt is on. thank goodness cameras were able to pick them up. and they're right now on the trail. so hopefully they'll pull them in. we'll get the backgrounds. we're talking about what happened in oklahoma on wednesday and here we are talking about what happened last night. >> james woods demanding justice in this case.
as we all are. we hope these alleged attackers are caught. we'll, of course, report that as soon as they are. now for your headlines this morning. new details of the tragic thrill kill of a college baseball star. 17-year-old michael jones, the teenager that is accused of driving the car that his friend's used to gun down chris lane is reportedly linked to a string of armed robberies much the robberies allegedly committed with his pregnant girlfriend. investigators said they recognized jones' ford focus from this footage and then that it led them to the suspect. all three boys allegedly involved in the shooting are now in jail. jones is being held on $1 million bond. lieutenant colonel allen west says this violence reflects a bigger problem. >> it is a gangster culture out there. it was a culture that's being permeated throughout the media and throughout the entertainment industry that we need to start speaking out about. furthermore, when you think about the fact that 72% of black
babies are being born out of wedlock, this is the effects, the second and third effects that we have seen in the inner city, in the black community. and in other communities where it's spilling over. so that is the real conversation that we need to start having. >> yeah, the suspects, all teenagers, three teenage boys. this as donations to chris lane's memorial fund are still just pouring in. more than $100,000 has been raised to help his parents bring their son back to australia. a terrorist plot to kidnap, torture and murder police officers stopped just in the nick of time. las vegas police arresting david brouche and devon newman. they are accused of planning to grab officers and execute them in a vacant house where they built a make shift jail. they belong to sovereign citizen extremists which is a group that is classified as domestic terrorists. newman is denying she wanted to
hurt any officers. >> i never intended to harm or kidnap anyone. i wanted to be able to know these things and turn them in to eternal affairs and to the da so that these people could be brought back under control. >> they are now behind bars charged with conspiracy to commit murder and attempt kidnapping. a major setback for new york city's controversial stop and frisk program. the city council defeating mayor michael bloomberg's veto of two bills placing strict limitations on that program. just last week a new york judge ruled to stop and -- ruled stopped and frisk was unconstitutional claiming it unfairly targeted minorities. the mayor is appealing the ruling and continues to defend the program saying that it has saved hundreds of lives. what happens in new york could have a ripple effect across the country as other cities are examining their own police tactics. detroit even recently announcing they were putting their stop and
frisk program into place. if you thought that drivers were the only ones who obey the rules of the road, well, you're mistaken. apparently birds follow the speed limit as well. a new study suggests that they react based on the speed of a particular road. this means that they will fly faster on busy highways and slower on the long, back roads. scientists also note more birds get hit in the spring. they say it's likely because the babies haven't had time to learn the road rules yet. those are your headlines. that's interesting. >> i feel better that our scientists are working on things like getting to mars rather than how fast are the birds going? >> we know longer have nasa, brian. we're focusing on other things. >> you're right. hours from now, deliberations continue in the ft. hood shooter case. the foshooter's fate in the han of 13 officers. celebrations began after nadal hass an passed on a closing argue am. so will the verdict be reached?
he only said i'm guilty and want to die. krib's ford atkinson is live in ft. hood with the details. hey, ford. >> reporter: good morning. yeah, the jury deliberated yesterday for about three hours before calling it quits and they'll be back this morning to continue those deliberations. one of the reasons this may take a little longer than a lot of people would like is there are 45 criminal counts to go through and the jury could certainly choose to literally go through each one individually and take an individual vote on all of them. and that could take a while. it could take several hours, maybe more than a day. we simply do not know. now yesterday closing arguments, the prosecutor was very clear. he used the word premeditation many times because that's what makes these murders capital crimes. he insisted that hasan had a premeditated design to kill. he used a laser weapon. he been to gun range practice many times.
this was not a spur of the moment thing that he intended to do this and had a plan to do it. hasan himself when asked for a closing statement said he had no closing statement. so what we have right now is a jury that's already deliberated for about three hours. they'll be back this morning. we simply do not know how long it will take. the presumption, of course, is that hasan will be found guilty. the real question here in the sentencing phase probably beginning this afternoon, possibly, or early next week. will he get life in prison or be sentenced to death? back to you. >> all right. thanks, ford. the question is if he wants death, do you give it to him? because the rest of his life in a wheelchair suffering and thinking about what he did might be worse. >> no, you don't get death because he wants death. because he wants to die as a martyr. >> we'll see how that verdict goes. the president on tour to talk about college. what about the economy? remember that? he says we're on track. is that true?
we have the actual numbers coming up. >> come on over, stu. then something out of a hollywood movie. scientistses figured out a way to read our minds. >> right. >> i know what's on stewart's mind. why did i get up so early? in rehearsal you didn't. you walked behind the couch. ♪ ♪ reinforced with scratch- resistant glass and a unibody made kevlar strong. okay google now. call my droid. the new droid ultra by motorola. when strength matters, droid does. too small. too soft.

it down. what are the facts? >> the actual record of the economy contradicts that boast that we're on solid ground and getting better. let me run through the actual facts here about what the misery of our economy. number one, 7 out of 8 jobs are part time these days. 54% of american paychecks are less than $30,000 a year. the length of time you spend on the unemployment line, if you lose your job, has doubled in the obama years. there are eight million dropouts from the workforce. on average, we have signed up 11,000 new people every day for food stamps in the obama years. the price of gas has virtually doubled. the average worker's health insurance has gone up by 29%. that is a grim record indeed. that's the obama years. >> so what numbers is the president looking at then? why is he boasting this? >> he's saying we've got growth. we've come out of the great
recession. i rescued you from the great recession and we have 2% growth. we're getting better. well, that's true. we are getting better. but if you dig beneath the surface, the reality on the ground of this economy, i'm calling it miserable. >> seven out of eight newly create jobs are part time. that's the result of how much we've spent in stimulus spending? >> well over $1 trillion. stimulus plan number one, increased government spending. that is all stimulus. plus, what's his name, bernanke's trillions of dollars in the economy despite all that, that's what you got on the ground. >> but people say look at the stock market. look at the jobless claim yesterday. we're down pretty low, 330,000 which caused our markets to go up. >> it's fascinating to find that top 20% of income earners, not president obama's constituents, they're doing quite well. the stock market is up 15,000 on the dow jones industrial average. the people who voted for him, these grassroots constituent
supporters, they're losing ground. by the way, it's getting worse. the pace of decline of america's middle class has actually speeded up in the obama years. median income down 4.4% since june of '09. >> so he accelerated income ee quality. >> he increased it. we're going to watch varney and company on friday. the friday edition is always the best and often ends in song. >> it is? >> yes. >> there's a promo. >> thanks, everyone. this guy says black people can't survive unless a lot of whites are killed. and guess what? he works for the department of homeland security. so why hasn't he been fired? a former department of justice employee says he knows and he's going to join us next. and barely even back to school, just beginning to look like christmas at some stores. what the heck is happening? we'll tell you why this year is different and starting much earlier. >> oh, no. ♪

homeland security. this is the same exact agency that was issuing warnings to local law enforcement on domestic terrorism about catholics and christians and returning army veterans. this is outrageous that somebody who's in charge of buying weapons and ammunition for the federal government to keep the homeland safe wants to kill white people and is perfectly fine with broadcasting it to the world. >> i thought that calling for race-related violence would pretty much be one of the issues we would have a zero tolerance policy for in the federal government. no? >> obviously, the guy is still at work today. he's getting up and going to go to his office. so the policy appears to be yes. but tucker, contrast what this lo lun irritated jeannie was a u.s. attorney in texas john craft. john craft is in beaumont. he simply posted some things on
facebook about disagreeing with president obama and the justice department is investigating mr. craft to see if he brought the doj into "disrepute." but here this guy is going to go to work today at dhs and irritated jeannie and get a taxpayer funded paycheck from you. >> well, of course. and this guy the rules were reversed, you know, he would be in prison at this moment. by the way, the federal government as is this happened is refusing even to acknowledge this. as a matter of policy says the statement, i cannot discuss whether or not an investigation exists. why can they not say that? >> they k the department of justice is investigating john craft. like so much with this administration, it depends on which side you're on. if you're on the side that is the looney left promote the administration side, they give you a pass. if you raise questions on facebook and you're conservative like john craft, you get
investigated. this is a problem throughout the federal government whether it's epa, department of labor, department of justice, your federal government is infested with far left radicals and eye d d delid logs. >> murdering whites, you that i would be a bit too far. apparently not. christian adams, thank you for joining us. take a look at this. astronauts spotted this flying by the international space station. what is it? could it be a ufo? the out of this world mystery coming up. and you know him as a rock star that is a friend of fork & friends and a hero to our heroes. find out what he did with this big check, the military he helped here as bret michaels joins us in a moment. what makes your family smile?

and so that's why we have to take this step. the toxicology of the medicine that was given to the girl, it was supposed to be 15 milligram dosage. the pharmacy gave her 150 milligrams. i was almost ten times what she was supposed to receive. and for a 6-year-old receiving ten time the dose was fatal dosage. >> simone, how did this happen? ten time the dose? >> i have no idea. >> was it the pharmacist? was it assistants? do you know who did this? >> no, ma'am, i don't. >> all right. well, we wish you the best. and we have reached out to the pharmacy and to their attorney representing them and they did not get back to us. so please continue to keep us posted. i'm very sorry for your loss. she is just a precious little girl. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> the president is used to

releasing these surveillance pictures hoping someone will recognize these guys. they're described as young black males between the ages of 16 and 19 years old. authorities say that they jumped 89-year-old delbert in a parking lot in spokane about 8 p.m he was on his way to play a game of pool, which he did very often. he was reportedly waiting in the parking lot at the time for a friend who didn't want to walk inside that hall alone. belton was beaten so badly that he suffered major injuries to his head. police later found him inside his car and brought him to the hospital. that is sadly where he died yesterday. his nephew speaking out about the senseless tragedy. he says that his great uncle had offered him a new life and he took him in during hard times. listen to this. >> i was pretty depressed as it was and delbert likele -- it seems trivial. he made it possible for me to get the job, find work.
he wasn't just my great uncle, he was a great person. he didn't deserve to die like that. >> certainly no one does. we're hearing so many stories about what a great man he was. he served our country also during world war ii and he survived being wounded in action during the battle of okinawa, only to die this way. james woods is calling for justice and tweeted this, please retweet this, do not let him die without anyone caring. police in spokane are saying they don't believe belton knew his attackers, but if anyone knows who these two teen-agers are, if they recognize him, call spokane police. we'll keep you posted on this as police look for these two suspects this morning. >> brian: they got a clear shot of them. that's optimistic. i imagine we'll get them real quick. four minutes after the top of the hour. >> ainsley: a terrorist plot to kidnap and murder police
officers. stopped in the nick of time. las vegas police arresting this couple while you were sleeping. they're accused of planning to grab officers and execute them in a vacant house where they built a makeshift jail. police say they belonged to sovereign citizen extremists, a group classified as domestic terrorists. the woman, she's denying all of this, saying she did not want to hurt officers. >> i never intended to harm or kidnap anyone. i wanted to be able to turn them in to internal affairs and to the d.a. so that these people could be brought back under control. >> ainsley: both are behind bars charged with conspiracy to commit murder and attempted kidnapping. hours from now, day two of jury deliberations in the fort hood case. the shooter's fate in the hands of 13 senior army officers. jurors broke last night after about 3 1/2 hours of deliberations. the trial came to an abrupt end

what? byron brown. i'm sorry. >> ainsley: got it mixed up. brian higgins is a democratic congressman in the buffalo area. president obama blaming that on his age.e. and those are your headlines. >> tucker: on his age? i don't think higgins is that old. >> brian: he seems 52. we wouldn't know what that's like. 7 minutes after the hour. it is unbelievable. it's almost a year to the day when the president of the united states we have learned ad libbed the fact that he drew a line in the sand if syria would ever use the chemical weapons or even move them out and about. well, they've used them and now they've used them again and now children are involved. we've seen the body bags. we've seen the frozen faces. we are not allowed to get the u.n. inspectors in there. once again, there is a tragedy in syria. the civil war wasn't enough. we're not taking any action. weapons of mass destruction can now be used. america's threat could be issued
and they could be ignored. what happens in the meantime? an emergency session in the united states. at which time our ambassador went in there and gave them a peace of their mind. am i right? >> tucker: absolutely right. whether it was a wise thing in the first place to draw this line in the sand over chemical weapons, there is no doubt now they have been used. in fact, we have pictures that we're not going to show you, so horrifying are they. >> brian: i know you were on "special report." they did show them. >> tucker: we did show them and they're over the top. but there is no debate now about the fact they were used. russia claiming they were used by the syrian rebels. >> brian: come on! >> tucker: that's a lewd includes claim. -- ludicrous claim. surely he used them and failing failing -- the u.s. fail to go act. >> brian: our u.s. ambassador was not there in attendance. no one knows where she is. james rosen asked that
yesterday. listen to this exchange. >> where exactly was ambassador power that she could not take part in this emergency security council session? where was she? >> well, i think the u.n. has spoken to this, but since you asked and i like to be transparent as possible, ambassador power is on a prearrangeed trip. >> tell us where ambassador power was. there is no dishonor in having had a scheduled vacation if that's the case. >> she had a previously scheduled trip. i don't think i need to go into more detail from here and you're welcome to call the united nations where she's the ambassador. >> you were willing to read out a certain set of facts related to this. why do you stop at this time? >> i have no more for you on this. >> ainsley: so if she's on vacation, admit she's on vacation. people take vacation, they scheduled that maybe with their family. this happened two days ago. she has enough time to come back if she wants to leave her vacation to come and help out the individuals in syria, make sure this doesn't happen here in the u.s. but ambassador bolton was
saying, hey, if you're on vacation, come back. >> tucker: she's doing something about it. she's taken to twitter and very forcefully. reports devastating: hundreds dead, including kids killed by chem weapons. u.n. must get there fast. troops must fast justice. this is diplomacy 2013 conducted in 140 characters or less. by the way, it's the u.n. that must do something about it. >> brian: it's unbelievable that they get on president bush for saying to saddam hussein, you have violated 13 separate u.n. resolutions. we are willing to back that up and give the u.n. teeth for the first time in their history. he goes and does that. the message was sent throughout the middle east, if you cross a line, there will be action. even bill clinton and bush 41 enforced a no fly zone for almost a decade because we backed up what we said we would. now our words mean absolutely nothing. you can cross us, you can cross that line and we give you a
stern tweet as a retort. you know what that means? gas more kids. for those who want to say they're just extremists, those were children in body bags. does al-qaeda bring children now to their insurgencies? i don't think so. >> tucker: i don't think that's fair, a stern tweet. i detect add certain grouchiness in 140 characters. i did. >> ainsley: she doesn't want to come back. the u.n. is sending angela cain, the disarmament representative from the u.n. she did fly to syria. she is there and authorized to investigate three out of the 13 sites that were deemed suspicious. >> brian: when we crossed the line, we did do this, we decided, as action when assad gassed his own people and proven, we decided to give them more humanitarian aid. >> tucker: also tweet in a grouchy way. so take that, bashar assad. so here is a question you may not have considered but now we
have data to indicate what you think. how do you consider the states you don't live in? there is a survey on this. >> brian: they asked 1600 people to do a survey. i believe monkey business was part of that. half of it. they asked people, categorize your states. we are the united states of america. so let's begin with category number 1. who wins the weirdest state award? congratulations. >> ainsley: the weirdest accent. first one is -- are we revealing. >> tucker: the commonwealth of -- grandmother roll. the bay state in the northeast, massachusetts. >> ainsley: where boston, where they say pock the car. >> brian: louisiana, followed by alabama. congratulations, weird people. >> tucker: worst food, coming in at number one, and by the way, this is well deserved with all respect, alaska. >> brian: how many different ways can you make cod? >> ainsley: then mississippi, then alabama. >> tucker: have you been to high land foreign grill outside
birmingham? >> brian: is this a push back on the study? >> tucker: this is a push back. >> ainsley: how about drunkest state? what do you think it is? louisiana, florida, california? where is nevada on there. >> tucker: what about maine? come on. >> ainsley: the rudest state. come on! who did they ask? new york? >> tucker: yeah. that's the foulest area. >> ainsley: shocker. new york, new jersey, then california. >> brian: if you get a chance to see people in california, they do seem rude. nicest state, georgia, minnesota or hawaii? all nice people and nice looking states. >> tucker: they're all nice. the cost of insurance is rising with obamacare a lot. what if there was a way around that? meet the doctor who saved one patient $17,000 by not using his insurance. >> ainsley: then the next batman is revealed. the name that no one expected. that's coming up.

>> brian: the cost of insurance is rising because of obamacare. what if there was a way to negotiate prices with your doctor the same way you would a salesman, the same way you would maybe buy a car? it turns out there is and i have an example. our next guest helped a patient save $17,000 by not going through his insurance. you curious? i thought so. joining us now is dr. jeffy singer. how is that a win-win for everybody? >> what a lot of people don't realize is that many doctors, in fact, more and more doctors and hospitals, are willing to negotiate substantial discounts to people who don't have insurance who are willing to pay cash up front. so in this particular patient's case, he had a very
unfortunately now adays, rare type of insurance where he didn't have any preferred provider agreement or anything like that. it was like an indemnity catastrophic policy, it paid a fixed amount and the price he was quoted from the hospital was outrageous. we said, let's start all over again and cancel the scheduled surgery and pretend that you don't have insurance and let's start negotiating prices. by doing that and we were not prevented from doing that by any contract, we were able to save him $17,000. he was able to negotiate a cash discount from me, from the anesthesiologist and the hospital where he had the surgery. >> brian: i understand why he would be happy, but why are the doctors and the hospitals happy with that? >> well, because we don't have to go through the expense of having to get paid. normally like for example, in my case, for me to have the cash up front, i don't have to pay three people to fill out all these forms and deal with the insurance company to wait six
weeks to get paid and get paid pretty much the same amount anyway. despite what i asked for. so it tends to be in my best interest to do this for cash. a lot of hospitals do the same way. people are not aware of that and if more and more people actually negotiated cash discounts, you would see what the real market price for things is, 'cause right now if you try to ask your doctor or hospital what does this cost, they can't give you an answer. >> brian: i know. it's the only thing in our country where you just have no idea how much anything costs. here is some examples that you gave to us for the average person to go in in a different situation or something similar. get high deductible insurance, pay for procedures out of pocket, find out what they are, see if you can talk the doctor to a lower price. shop like a consumer, and cut out middle men, which in many case social security insurance. let me ask you, are you one of the rare forward-thinking doctors who think like this? could some doctors look at you like you have three heads when you bring this up?
>> no. no. more and more doctors are doing this. in fact, like i said, even hospitals will do this. the problem is it's not getting out there. people aren't aware of this. in fact, in oklahoma city, there is a center called surgery center of oklahoma city, started by doctors. they don't deal with insurance companies at all. they don't deal with medicare or medicaid. they have a very transparent, complete price schedule listed on their web site that includes everything from the surgery, to the nursing care, to the preand post op care. they're competing with the hospitals throughout oklahoma city so effectively that the hospital is starting to hurt 'cause they're losing customers. >> brian: thank you for sharing your story and hopefully we put a light bulb on some people's heads who are putting off surgery. >> thank you. >> brian: what is the single greatest threat to our national security? al-qaeda overseas? no. the answer straight from the outgoing f.b.i. director, robert muller. and he's back. >> we're going to washington,

split. seven. that's the number of actors who have played batman, ben affleck unmasked as the newest one. he'll be the eighth when he appears in the "man of steel" sequel next year. >> ainsley: from sci-fi to your traditional thriller, there is going to be something for everyone at the weekend box office. but what's worth your money? we're going to ask our fox news contributor and founder of "nerdtears.com, kevin mccar mccarthy. >> i'm excited about the ben affleck news. i thought michael keaton was the best. the problem with christian bails was that terrible growling voice. >> ainsley: yes! >> i didn't like that voice he had. that bothered me. >> brian: it doesn't make batman seem real when he uses that
voice. >> tucker: the world's end? >> "the world's end" is a new film, a trilogy. i mentioned trilogy, but movies aren't connected via characters. they're connected via ice cream. i know it sounds strange, but in the u.k., they had this ice cream called cornento. every single one of those movies feature a different ice cream flavor, which is why they're connected. this film is five best friends on an epic pub crawl, 12 bars one night and every single bar name is a foreshadowing of what will happen in that bar. the actors are incredible. peg has a great depth. it's a movie that has funny, serious, and dramatic moments throughout. you care for the characters. i think simon peg is a great actor. he was great in "star trek." it's my least favorite of the trilogy. i think the other two were better. but still four out of five.
>> brian: let's go to the next one. >> "your next" is interesting. i'm tired of hollywood releasing unoriginal films. this one was shot in 2011, yet studios are green lighting stuff like "smurf 2". give us more original films. this deals with a wife and husband celebrating their anniversary. they invite their family to the house and a gang of masked villains start to attack the house. it's a very, very violent horror movie. if you're not a horror fan, stay away. but the interesting concept here is you have a victim becoming the hunter. she starts to hunt the villains and that is an awesome, awesome twist. i feel like the move yeah is a combination of "home alone," "hunger games" and" the strangers." it's an epic horror film, kind of in the vein of "the cabin in the woods." four out of five.
very violent. >> ainsley: what about "mortal instrument, city of bones"? >> awful, awful film. this is a movie that's so bad, it's so bad that it makes twilight look an academy award winner. that's how terrible this particular film is. a teen-ager girl figures out she's a shadow hunter, half angel, half human. it was awkward, cheesy. i had to cover my eyes 'cause i couldn't handle the awkwardness. 1 1/2 out of five. bumping it down to a 1 right now. did not like it. >> brian: it's a nightmare when an executive producer covering his eyes at the screening. >> yeah, exactly. >> brian: kevin, you're on the clock for this. we're going to watch these movies and find out if we wasted our money, especially ainsley. >> ainsley: see, i liked twilight. thanks so much. >> follow me on twitter. >> tucker: america's most honest movie critic. this guy says black people can't survive unless whites are murdered in large numbers.

>> i was excited to come and speak to you the day the christmas cantata was being performed because it's nice to celebrate christmas in august. it's my favorite holiday. it represents the birth of christ, our savior. okay, so yesterday i had -- i did get the opportunity to speak to this amazing group. this is your shot of the morning. last night i had the pleasure of speaking at the international youth fellowship world camp. more than 2,000 people were there in attendance and this group, it's just young adults. they performed this christmas cantata. they travel all around the world performing this. it's a celebration of christmas through music that goes on throughout the year. but they are influencing the lives of so many kids. they come from all different countries, here in new york, huge group. they're really preaching to these kids to go out and make a big difference in your community and your society. do the right thing. just a neat group. i really enjoyed it. >> tucker: were you nervous? >> ainsley: i was nervous.
it's easy to talk into a camera. >> tucker: it's true. >> ainsley: you look out and see the crowd, it's nerve racking. >> brian: where are they based? >> ainsley: in huntington, new york, which is close to you. that's where their headquarters are. but the big, large world headquarters in south korea. >> brian: wow. good job. >> ainsley: thanks. >> brian: if you were nervous, you didn't look nervous. how is that? >> ainsley: thank you, i appreciate it. >> tucker: now an extreme weather alert. the wildfire burning outside of yosemite national park surged overnight. they tripled in size ask cover 99 square miles. it's so large, california governor declared a state of emergency. firemen say it's only 1% contained so far. for more, we turn as always to maria molina. >> good morning and unfortunately, we do have drought conditions. that's what's providing that fuel for those wildfires to continue to burn across parts of california, sections of oregon, and also multiple wildfires across parts of the rockies, including states like montana and also idaho. we also have a number of red flag warnings in effect because we have that elevated fire
danger in place, low humidity, gusty winds are in place. so those warnings will remain in effect through at least early this afternoon. but there is a change coming soon. so that's good news. we have tropical depression 9 across parts of the eastern pacific. it could develop into a tropical storm. but the good thing with this storm system is that it's not really going to intensify very much into a hurricane and we're going to see much needed rain from this storm system that's going to raise those moisture levels across parts of the west. temperature wise, feeling very much like summer across parts of the plains. temperature on the rise in the midwest. otherwise in the northeast, new york city, not bad, right? we have sunshine. we have temperatures, very pleasant. we have some people here from missouri. you're very excited to see thompson square? >> yes. this was a bonus. >> great. i hope you enjoy. back to the studio. >> brian: all right. out and about, playing on the turf. a department of homeland security manager in charge of buying weapons and ammunition
reportedly moonlighting as a hate spewing antiwhite activist. i wonder how that pays. she's doing it on-line. according to the web site, quote, a lot of whites needed to be killed. he reportedly got permission to run the site. the government says he originally claimed it was for selling concert tickets. earlier on "fox & friends," tucker spoke to jay christian adams, a former doj employee who accused that department of racial bias and says this is not surprising. >> this is the same exact agency that was issuing warnings to local law enforcement on domestic terrorism about catholics and christians and returning army veterans. this is outrageous. >> brian: the agency says they're investigating, but no word on what disciplinary action have been taken, or will be. >> tucker: terror threat that forced the u.s. to close dozens of embassies earlier this months has not passed.
terrorists have only postponed their plans. even though president obama says al-qaeda is on the run, the director told our own katherine hedge there is an enormous threat, especially a home-grown threat. >> which is the greatest threat to u.s. national security right now? al-qaeda in pakistan, in yemen, killed in north africa or home-grown terrorism? >> i would start with home-grown terrorism as the most immediate threat as we've seen in the boston marathon. the increase in individuals who are radicalized on the internet and in addition to that, can gain the not only on how you develop an explosive device on the internet. that's the biggest threat at this juncture. after that, i would say al-qaeda in the arabian peninsula out of yemen. >> tucker: muller says home-grown terrorists are many cases followers of al-awlaki. he will leave the agency next month. >> brian: howard dean back. >> and then we're going to washington, d.c. to take back
the white house! ya! >> brian: they want that magic, don't they? the former vermont governor reportedly mulling another run for president in 2016. recently has been seen in states like iowa and utah. but he says those trips are to help win back state legislatures. asked about his plans, he said for the time being, he'll be supporting hillary clinton. yeah! >> tucker: the would be robber catching a tough break. this guy apparently was tossed out of a grocery store window in brazil where they take crime fighting seriously. he went in to rob the place armed with a gun. the only thing he left with? many bruises. those are your headlines. >> brian: if you wonder where ainsley is, so are we. she has the fortunate assignment of going out with thompson square right now. >> ainsley: so excited! growing up in south carolina, i love me some country music, brian and tucker. they're the reigning acm and cma

she wrote a love song that wasn't about you? >> i mean -- >> cause another fight. >> ainsley: you're going to sing for us today, right? >> we are. >> ainsley: what are you going to sing? >> a piece off of our new album. >> yeah, four or five songs. >> ainsley: where are you from originally? >> alabama. >> from oklahoma. >> my peeps in washington county. >> ainsley: how did you meet? in nashville? >> we did. we both moved there in 1996 and met the same week that we moved to town. >> ainsley: really? >> from our individual states. >> ainsley: love at first sight? >> yeah, yeah. >> one of those things. >> ainsley: you meet at a bar singing? >> sort of, yeah. >> a supper club, they called it. >> yeah. >> ainsley: that's what we call it down south. when we get together. >> that makes our family feel better about us going to a bar. >> ainsley: i met at a supper club. that's acceptable. we look forward to hearing you sing. are we going to hear them sing now? we're pitching back to you, tucker and brian.
we're going to hear them sing coming up. we're excited. >> brian: absolutely. good job, ainsley. had a chance to talk to two of country music's finest and they'll be singing right on 48th and 6th. >> tucker: their dream turned into a nightmare when the cruise line left them in a filthy incompetent hospital in turkey. how did that happen? a travel agent joins us next with an explanation. >> brian: it's one of the biggest movies in the country right now. why is one korean war veteran and theater owner banning "the butler" on his big screen? ♪ [ male announcer ] this is claira. to prove to you that aleve is the better choice for her, she's agreed to give it up. that's today?

and you were all, "yum!" and we're like, "is it just us, or has this been a really good conversation?" and you were like, "i would talk, but my mouth is full of yogurt." yoplait. it is so good! reinforced with scratch- resistant glass and a unibody made kevlar strong. okay google now. call my droid. the new droid ultra by motorola. when strength matters, droid does. >> brian: quick headlines. incredible sight caught on camera. take a look as a line of monster fog rolls over a mountain range in canada. this happened in a small fishing village in newfound land.
and it's topping the charts. but a korean war veteran won't be showing "the butler" at his two theaters because of jane fonda. >> jane fonda, in my opinion, is a treasonous person. >> brian: yep. he feels that way because her proceed testing of the vietnam war in the 1960s. he trained hundreds of pilots who fought and died in the war. here is tucker talk about something different. >> tucker: imagine being utterly abandoned, left to fend for yourself in a foreign country. it happened to one couple on a royal caribbean cruise to turkey recently. 89-year-old dodge fell and broke his help on board the ship. he was then taken to a remote hospital in turkey where nobody spoke english. joining us is tammy, the owner of the travel agency the couple had been using for years. she's a good friend of the couple's. thank you for joining us this morning. >> thank you. >> tucker: as i understand the
story, he was gravely injured on this cruise ship and they just dumped him in a filthy hospital that couldn't treat him? could that be true? >> well, yeah. that is true. what happened was -- the reason i want to tell the story of exactly what happened and actually fox is probably going to get the story the way it is 'cause there are so many different stories that i'm reading and i'm like no, that's not what happened. i thank you for having me on. what happened was he fell and broke his hip and on the -- early morning hours monday. they couldn't treat him. they took him on an ambulance and they just let him go. they took him to badin. if you have a map and show where it is in turkey versus where normal a hospital would be, they sent him there, which was a government hospital. it was dirty. it was a hospital. not to say there is anything wrong with the turkish people, it's just that particular hospital was not capable of doing the surgery. they just left him there. they had no communication with
them. they made a statement, royal caribbean did, that they were there in communication the entire time. the only communication that this couple had was with my agent, judy, who has been with me for 13 years, and she contacted our ground tour operator in turkey, who oh, my god, the man translated everything for them. told them no, you are not going to stay at that hospital. i will work on getting you a government ambulance -- >> tucker: i'm going to stop threw to read the statement you just referred to in the interest of both sides. this is the royal caribbean statement. even though they had to leave the ship, we still provided assistance to them while they were in turkey. the health and safety of our guests is always a top priority. we will continue to do what we can. that's just flat out not true, you say? >> no, it is not true. can i tell you when royal -- does that not sound like they're right next to the bedside? >> tucker: yes, it does. >> do you want to know when they showed up in today. just now.
>> tucker: this happened monday, you said. >> exactly. they just showed up now. the on call insurance company for royal caribbean just showed up. >> tucker: so they had insurance, they took out insurance in case anything bad happened? >> right. and normally we would take out other type of insurance. not cruise insurance 'cause it doesn't cover you for everything. travel agents know this. we did not have a choice because this was a cruise, because this couple was on the ameriquest that caught on fire. this was their we're sorry cruise, and that's why they put them on this particular cruise. so how can you get insurance for something that was paid for by royal caribbean? >> tucker: it's unbelievable. if you're out there wondering, should i get a travel agent? do i really need one? turns out sometimes you do. thank heaven they had one. thank you for joining us this morning. i appreciate it. >> thank you. >> tucker: when we come back, anna kooiman takes the plunge. she's about to go cliff diving in boston harbor. in fact, that's the release form we're going to show it to you in

i read your book. all right. geraldo is coming up shortly. don't ask me how i know. >> ainsley: we're going to start out with your headlines this morning before we have a little bit more fun. we have serious stories to tell you about. new details on a suspect in the tragic thrill kill of a college baseball star. 17-year-old michael jones, that teen-ager accused of driving the car that his friends used to gun down chris lane, now being linked to a string of armed robberies. those crimes allegedly committed with his pregnant girlfriend. investigators said they recognized jones' ford focus from surveillance footage and that led them to the suspects. all three boys suspected in the shooting are now in jail with jones being held on a $1 million bond. lieutenant colonel allen west says this violence reflects a bigger problem. >> it is a gangster culture out there. it is a culture that's being permeated throughout the media and throughout the entertainment industry that we need to start speaking out about. furthermore, when you think
about the fact that 72% of black babies are being born out of wedlock, this is the effects of the second and third order effects we have seen in the inner city, in the black community and in other communities where it's spilling over. that is the real conversation that we need to start having. >> ainsley: at this hour, donations are pouring in for the victims' memorial fund. more than $100,000 has been raised to help chris lane's parents bring their son's body back to australia. a terrorist plot, to kidnap, torture and murder police officers stopped just in the nick of time. las vegas police arresting this couple while you were sleeping. they're accused of planning to grab officers and execute them in a vacant house where they built a makeshift jail. police say that they belonged to the sovereign citizen extremist group. it's a group classified as domestic terrorists. the woman denying that she wanted to hurt officers. >> i never intended to harm or kidnap anyone. i wanted to be able to film
these things and turn them in to internal affairs and to the d.a. so that these people could be brought back under control. >> ainsley: both are now behind bars charged with conspiracy to commit murder and attempted kidnapping. a major setback for new york city's controversial stop and frisk program. the city council defeating mayor bloomberg's veto of two bills placing strict limitations on the program. just last week, a new york judge ruled stop and frisk was unconstitutional, claiming it unfairly targets minorities. the mayor is appealing the ruling and continues to defend the program, saying it has saved hundreds of lives. what happens in new york could have a ripple effect across the country as other cities are examining their own police tactics. detroit announcing they were putting their stop and frisk program into place. it looks like richie sambora is going to be living on a prayer. the long-time lead guitarist just got fired by won jovi.

the fact is that these were probably the kind of youngsters who come from deteriorated or nonexistent families. they exist like wolves. they get their values from rap videos. black, white, brown, yellow, red, it is a decline and fall of a society and of a culture. we have to be very careful not to attribute this necessarily to their race. is this a race-motivated crime? race matters, of course. but we have a -- >> tucker: i think that's a fair point. we can draw two broad conclusions from individual crimes, but that usually happens -- you've seen a lot on the left, very much including the president, take interracial crimes to make larger points about racism in america. here you have a number of interracial crimes recently and those people have been silent. double standard? >> my point, tucker, is that i think that in the post-trayvon era where conservatives watched as liberals created a false narrative of a black boy being
victimized by a ruthless white guy, a racist white guy, that was a false narrative in many ways. we saw that, for example, george zimmerman was hispanic and not white. so it dulled it, but didn't in any way mitigate or reduce the reaction of the civil rights establishment, the reverend al sharpton and jesse jackson and the thousands of young people who took to the streets. i think in the post-trayvon era, there is a perverse tug of war going o conversely conservatives are saying, hey, wait a second. why didn't the liberal media so exercised over the trayvon martin slaying, similarly take up that -- for that slaying of the white boy or other cases and then the christopher lane, this awful shooting of the australian jogger. >> brian: on this shooting, these two guys beat the 88-year-old world war ii veteran to death. here is what james woods said on
twitter. don't let him die without anyone caring. we are paying attention to what he accomplished and what he did. and from michelle malkin, get this, no guns were used. what's the gun grabbing left's excuse how? guns not being the problem because that's what everyone brought up in oklahoma with the 22-year-old baseball player jogging, shot in the back. >> i think it is something deeper than the particular weapon used. there is no doubt a deterioration and the family structure. there is a nation of personal responsibility. there is, you know, since the great society, there has been a tendency to attribute responsibility to everybody other than the participant, the player. i lament those facts. i also think, and tucker you pointed it out, we have to be very careful, race, yes. relevant, but is race -- was this a hate crime? what was the motivation? in oklahoma city t looked like their motive was more benow --
>> ainsley: what about the fact that -- >> a glorification of their own boredom. >> ainsley: what about sex, the fact that these are all boys? the suspects are male teen-agers. we have a -- i applied for big brother, big sisters and they told me, thank you, but we don't need anymore women. we need male role models in our community. >> i don't think there is any doubt about that. i think colonel west hit it on the head. sometimes i think he goes overboard, but not in that regard. there is, and i use the generational wolves being raised. when you get your values from an mtv video and you got the whole baggy pants which comes from a jailhouse culture, when you have a mindset that you are a rebel against society on the one hand and then when you start aging out, then society has a requirement to support you and to entitle you, i think there is a disintegration of values and i wish the president could speak more about it. that's the most important job he can do now. bring the american family back together. stop this disintegration.
stop this i'm not responsible for what i do kind of trend that's going on. >> tucker: never mentioned marriage once. >> brian: let's talk about the department of homeland security. >> tucker: that's right. a dhs employee, whose job is to buy guns and ammunition for the u.s. government maintained a web site for which he received permission from the government apparently on which he calls for the wholesale slaughter of white people. this strikes me as yet another example of a double standard at work. he flipped the race around in this story, this guy would be facing charges. yet the government won't even tell us whether he's being investigated or not. >> i think -- you can forget about expertise and education and all of the rest of it. all you need is simple common sense to look at this web site and to understand that this is a hateful person who has advocated things that are anti-american. he is not in any way, shape or form a patriot. what he is is a radical extolling the virtue of extremism. this person should go on
hearings immediately and probably be terminated from public employment. this person is not fit to serve the united states government in whatever regard. you can't work for the federal government and then go home and be a nazi. you can't work for the federal government and then go home and be a violent communist anarchist. these are things that are mutually inconsistent -- >> brian: you're calling for action. >> we must have action. this is appalling! again, whether it goes in favor of the conservative scenario or the liberal scenario, i don't care. i'm in the militant middle. this is an obvious case of someone who has exceeded in an egregious ways the boundaries of what is appropriate when you're in the employment of the federal government. >> brian: we'll watch this weekend to get more of that passion. >> you're going to see something that is stop and frisk has been dealt an awful blow. i grew up in -- spent a lot of my formative years in this city.
i remember the bad old days. stop and frisk helped make new york the safest big city on earth. now the city council has overridden the mayor's veto and it shows what could be in store in the post-bloomberg era in this town and other cities across this country if police are stripped of their ability to be aggressive in the combating of violent crime. >> brian: you're on fire! >> ainsley: thank you. >> brian: by the way, by the second election, run for your lives. >> ainsley: he served our country, but now one fast food chain is refusing to serve this disabled vet because of his service dog. what exactly happened? that vet and his dog are here to tell us their story. >> brian: john lennon coming back to life. >> tucker: the man is prepared to clone him, has exactly what he foods to do it. we'll tell you what body part he has obtained that belongs to john lennon. >> ainsley: oh, no. ♪ too big.

for -- in the united states has gone between 7 and 9% his entire presidency. people need jobs now. and i get paid to read and listen to these speeches, so i do. the thing i've been struck by is whenever he starts to go through the list of things that he says hold out a future for middle class jobs, you always find in the middle him mentioning the wind and the sun. >> tucker: what he means is. >> wind mills and solar panels. i said, this is kind of loopy. where is this guy coming from? these people need jobs right now. >> tucker: these are not middle class concerns. >> these are not middle class concerns. >> tucker: these are rich hollywood concerns. >> that's the point. barak obama is fundamentally a representative of the upper middle class. he's like a representative of left wing oblis. >> tucker: the senator from whole foods. >> he has ideas that he thinks will be good for people, like the man from the ford foundation. that's not what people need right now. i'll give you a specific example. he was just in new york state, right, and new york state needs
more than anything, approval of hydraulic crafting. governor cuomo won't do it. the president will be in pennsylvania where they've done it. dead communities have been revived. you go to upstate new york, they're like ghost towns up there. it is awfulment the president lately has come around to fracking because there is so much public support for it. if he had had courage and if he really wanted jobs for middle class americans, he would have stood up there in buffalo and syracuse and said, i think that this state needs to get around to approving hydraulic fracking. that would have taken courage and that would have taken leadership. but no. yoko know know is against it, lady gaga and the president doesn't want to upset that democratic base. >> tucker: that is really -- and really the tiny little sliver of the base and the least impresssive sliver of it, i would say. thank you for joining us. >> good to be with you. >> tucker: "wall street journal," editorial page. read it every day. do you know what you did last night? you might have texted without knowing it. the startling new report on

>> tucker: where in the world is u.n. ambassador samantha power? she missed a meeting about syria's chemical weapons attack this week. doug mckelway has the latest on this from the white house. doug? >> good morning to you. in the face of growing evidence that the syria mounted this alleged chemical attack yesterday, the president offered his first words in an interview
yesterday with cnn. and he said, at least he appeared to lean towards a view, if not confirming, that it was indeed a chemical attack. here is a little bit of what the president had to say yesterday. >> i can say that unlike some of the evidence that we were trying to get earlier that led to a u.n. investigator going into syria, what we've seen indicates that this is clearly a big event of grave concern and we are already in communications with the entire international community. we're moving through the u.n. to try to prompt better action from them. >> the administration's point person at the united nations is newly confirmed u.n. ambassador samantha powers, but powers was nowhere to be seen yesterday as the u.n. security council convened an emergency meeting on this ailed hemcal attack. the state department spokesperson was asked about that and refused to say where
powers was. >> i don't understand why you're unwilling to tell us where ambassador powers was. there is no dishonor in having a scheduled vacation. >> she had a previously scheduled place. i don't think i need to go into more detail from here. >> the u.n. was represented at that emergency session at the deputy level, as was russia, france and britain. under increasing criticism that the president, that the administration is not enforcing this so-called red line, the administration pointed out that it did indeed enforce the red line after the first chemical attack in syria was confirmed. this by providing direct military assistance to the syrian rebels. but the administration has never said exactly ha that direct military assistance was, nor has it said whether it has effected the outcome of the civil war in syria one way or the other. back to you. >> brian: at the very least, we know it's a gray line because everyone is confused about what exactly we did, which is the problem. doug, thanks so much. >> you bet.

i don't get it. talk about getting the shock of a lifetime.

hi, maria. >> yes. we could be looking at thunderstorms out there across parts of colorado and the rest of the rockies. that could produce some hail, damaging winds and even potentially a lot of heavy rain that could produce flash flooding. that will be a concern. we need the moisture from some of these thunderstorms rolling through parts of the rockies because we've had those wildfires across parts of california, parts of nevada, up in through parts of montana. several areas dealing with wildfires. we have a red flag warning in effect because of the elevated fire danger in place across some of these areas. change is coming. because of those storms, we are expecting several inches of rain. that should help the conditions out here across parts of the west. temperature wise, hot across parts of the plains. northeast staying right around average, 84 degrees. or 83 will be the high in new york city. let's head back inside. >> ainsley: thanks so much. >> tucker: it was a special celebration meant to honor those who sacrifice often goes

moms. they have the hardest job, but don't tell them that. >> i don't look at it as being tough. i look at it as doing what you have to do. >> if we can't support them, they can't do their job. it's like any other job. >> before they leave, they have a few more surprises. every mom gets a car seat, stroller, and baby bedding, along with a lot of other gifts. >> we have one for everybody!
